JCW supports the Governments ambitious target to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
Becoming a net zero emissions energy business means that we are reducing emissions from our operations and from the fuel and other energy products we sell to our customers.
New LED lighting being installed in all offices, warehouse and production areas
Hybrid cars being supplied for company cars
Eco boilers been installed in all kitchen areas
Less packaging on pallet deliveries
Use 90% renewable energy for electricity
Recycle all packaging, wood and timber
Use of recycled papers
We believe that the business strategies we plan to deliver in the UK can already reduce our own UK emissions and those of our UK customers by 40% by 2030 (in comparison to 2019) that will need to scale up post 2030 to help the UK Government meet the 6th Carbon Budget and achieve the UK’s target of net zero by 2050
JCW are also working closely with our suppliers who also have policies to meet these needs.
Timber is an organic, non-toxic and naturally renewable building material.
Whole life performance
But benefits don’t stop at the point of a homes completion on site. Using a standard 140mm stud timber frame system achieves U-values of 0.27 using readily available and standard insulation – and using higher performance insulation and insulation breather membranes can boost these figures down as low as 0.11. This means significant carbon savings in the homes day to day use, as well as financial benefits from lower running costs.
A timber frame home is a warm, comfortable and safe place in to live – what more could you ask from a home that is also helping you to reduce energy costs and your carbon footprint.
